HIV Advanced Disease Management Solutions

Monitoring CD4 lymphocyte counts is essential in providing critical information that impacts patient care. CD4 monitoring allows caregivers to know when the disease transforms and stage its progression so they can implement the most appropriate intervention. Beckman Coulter has been providing cost effective solutions to monitor CD4 status in resource limited countries for several decades. The mounting HIV problem in these regions of the world has led to innovative solutions with a mission to deliver patient care.

‘Since it is so simple and intuitive, training my techs was a breeze. You could train them in less than an hour. So we were able to cross-train most of the techs in the area in very short time. That makes everything efficient in the laboratory.’

Alexandra Amador, MT (ASCP), CHT (ABHI), Manager Histocompatibility Lab, University of Miami.

Sample preparation and data management usually are the major bottlenecks in routine flow cytometry. Even with a semi-automated process, you and your team may spend hundreds of hours per year for tasks that don't add to your laboratory's productivity.

Work with a system that combines sample preparation, reagent management, barcode scanning and analysis in one compact platform.

  • Provide a 24/7 flow cytometry service as the AQUIOS CL can be run by less experienced operators.
  • Increase productivity with high-throughput performance that eliminates many of the least efficient features of existing systems.
  • Minimize the potential for user error inherent in existing systems that require numerous manual steps to set up and run.
  • Discover the AQUIOS Tetra System for Lymphocyte Subset Analysis, AQUIOS PLG or CD4 testing or automate your own user-defined assay with AQUIOS Designer Software.
  • Train in as little as one day for skilled flow cytometrists with computer based training videos.
  • AQUIOS CL with Tetra-1 has been accepted for the World Health Organization list of prequalified in vitro diagnostic products.
